Welcome hoppers! If you've been following the hop from the beginning you should have landed here from Caryl's blog. If you just dropped in randomly from cyberspace, you caught me participating in Operation Write Home's Veterans Day Blog Hop.
Operation Write Home is a group of crafters from across America (and beyond!) who make handmade cards for deployed heroes so they can keep in touch with their loved ones at home! We serve all branches of the military in all deployed locations, including those stationed aboard ships.
We also make "Any Hero" Cards. News from the homefront—even from strangers—is a treasure to those far from home. "Hero Mail is great," says one Chaplain. "I go out and pray with the soldiers before missions and I hand out Hero Mail." Letters are distributed to those who rarely get mail, or to those most in need of encouragement the day the box arrives. "It helps to know that we are remembered!"
The challenge for this hop was to create an Any Hero card and a Valentines Card (the next big holiday we are all frantically making cards for) I spent last weekend creating, and got so caught up in it all that I forgot to take pictures of the Valentines cards so I'm sharing two of my "Any Hero Cards instead. These cards were made with paper from K&Company's Army Collection and the sentiment is from The Angel Company's "God Bless America" set. It's got a bunch of sentiments which are just perfect for cards or scrapbook pages with a military theme and I'm giving one away today. All you have to do is leave a comment by midnight on the 15th and I will have my veteran pick a number at random to decide the winner. Don't forget to leave me a way to contact you and thanks for stopping by!
Now hop on over to see what Dawn has been up to! I "met" Dawn on the last OWH blog hop - you will love her blog!
